Grateful Dead - Europe '72 50th Anniversary (3LP)
Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of The Grateful Dead's iconic Europe '72 Tour with the original Europe '72 album, newly remastered. Plangent Processes tape restoration and speed correction, with mastering by GRAMMY(r) Award winning engineer Dave Glasser, Produced for Release by David Lemieux. 180-Gram, Black Vinyl. In another industry defying move, The Grateful Dead followed up their first Gold Record, the 1971 live showcase SKULL ROSES, with another live album, one that to most fans and critics surpassed even the excellence of the previous offering. From April 7 to May 26, 1972, the Dead performed and recorded 21 live concerts, plus a set in a television studio, with every night being an exceptional display of the magic that was uniquely the live Grateful Dead. These concerts and this tour, 50 years later, are still considered one of the highest of high points in The Grateful Dead's performing career. In an era when a double album was rare enough, the Dead outdid even their own lofty standards by producing a 3 LP masterpiece that to this day is considered one of the finest live albums ever produced. Remastered from the original analog tapes, the album has never sounded better.
